I'm in the until we are full on Holodeck VR,video games aren't sports to me...Competitive Entertainment/leisure activity...

I see most Olympic things competitions,but sometimes struggle to call them sports....Athlete...Sure.

I'm not going to attack someone for saying it's a sport or not...

^ Fair enough. 

I can't really tell you what you consider sports and not.  But I require simultaneous play and defense.  Weight-lifting has neither, so it doesn't apply for me.


How about pool or bowling?  Or chess or checkers?  Because there are a lot of high school and/or colleges that have teams who play those

Dave I have to agree to disagree with you on weightlifting because it's a tangible outcome.  I know when the guy before me goes how much I have to Bench/Squat/Deadlift to win.  Bodybuilding on the other hand is an athletic competition.  It's subjective and decided by judges.

Powerlifting is also decided by judges. There are rules for squat depth, bench lockout and pause on chest. Also, just because you know what a guy totals, doesn't mean you CAN lift enough to beat him. Having competed in both, I would say powerlifting/Olympic lifting is definitely "more" of a sport than bodybuilding.

That said, I can understand how people would say neither is a sport.
